Ixia Hits Q1 Revenue of $85.6 Million

Ixia reported Q1 2012 revenue of $85.6 million, compared with $78.5 million reported for the 2011 first quarter and $83.7 million reported for the 2011 fourth quarter. On a GAAP basis, the company recorded net income for the 2012 first quarter of $4.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with net income of $7.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the 2011 first quarter

"In the first quarter, we achieved record revenue primarily driven by a robust quarter in Japan as well as the strong sales of our LTE solutions worldwide," commented Victor Alston, Ixia's chief operating officer. "We are encouraged by the strong start to the year and the opportunities for growth we see in 2012. While we have seen increases in the levels of our operating expenses over the last few quarters, we believe that these investments position us well in the more rapidly growing and promising segments of our market, including virtualization, cloud, mobility and security test solutions for the converged networks of the future. These investments pave the way for Ixia to be a leader in emerging markets for the years to come."
